Hello,
According to me, paper cartridge filter is better than the sand filter. It is more versatile and generally, have a higher max flow rate GPM and will end up saving you money in upkeep costs and savings to your pump.

If your pool pump is over 1.5 HP, go for Cartridge Filter.

Cartridge filtration or sand filtration depends on the type of swimming pool that is the business pool or the family pool. The sand filter pool is more durable, less expensive maintenance costs while better quality filter paper filter, easy to move around the pool area.
